The data set comprises full text documents from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences covering 01-07-1997 to 09-17-2002 (148 issues containing some 93,000 journal pages). The ARTICLE and CITATION tables were obtained by parsing original SGML files from PNAS. The AUTHOR (with author order), MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) terms, and Medline UI (unique identifier) tables were added by joining Medline records with the original PNAS-supplied records for the same articles using the UNIQUE_KEY.The data is also available on Microsoft Access 97 format.
